Mushy was an absolute gent to the very end and we are very pleased to have met him and had him speak for us at our awards dinner.”
You gave them a real them perspective on life and gave them great ideas on striving forward and to not give up.
Such an honest account of your experiences was so refreshing and eye opening and many of our students to know that they can overcome things as well and you inspired belief in themselves.
Thank you very much and we hope to see you again soon.”
Musharaf is a very engaging young man and his (two) speeches went down very well with both audiences. He was relevant, interesting and inspiring. His celebrity from Educating Yorkshire proceeded him as far as the grown-up and elder students were concerned, but for those children who did not know him his message of perseverance and the value in which he holds education and teachers was well put across and well received. The fact that public speaking must still hold some demons for Musharaf only heightened the strength of what he said. Musharaf also had lunch with senior staff and school governors and the audience around the dining table were spell bound with his story. The fact that his plate of food went cold in front of him whilst he talked spoke volumes for the ease with which he talked about himself and his experiences in school. All who met Musharaf were so impressed by his dignity and modesty as well as the power of his message. As a school, we have received much positive feedback about him and we cannot recommend him highly enough.
As a keynote speaker, Mushy delivered an inspirational message of resilience, determination and positivity. His story is deeply personal, but so wonderfully motivational. His words comes straight from the heart and we were moved by his journey. Mushy’s experience resonated with all staff, empowering us to recognise the impact of what we do.
He reminded us that relationships are life-changing and that great teachers prioritise this. He thanked educators for helping students to achieve whatever they want.
Mushy’s journey of success is one that deserves to be heard by staff and students alike. Our schools have shared his story in assemblies and classrooms and we hope that he will continue to inspire others and make a difference to children and young people everywhere.
